Help please! NI programs not appearing in Logic!

I downloaded NI session strings 2. It was not showing in Kontakt 5. I upgraded to Kontakt 6, still not showing. Instead, when I click on the library and try to add the software folder Session Strings 2 Library to Kontakt it tells me 'Session Strings 2' already exists within the Kontakt Libraries tab'. But it does not show.

Earlier on - after downloading Session Strings 2 I had to manually drag all the downloaded parts into 'components' as before that those parts were just sitting in my downloads.

When I say 'parts' I mean there was a folder called Session Strings 2 as well as a Session Strings 2 library folder.

I already tried quitting Logic, rescanning the audio units manager, restarting my MAC, but no luck so far.

Now I just deleyed Kontakt 5 so thst I could download Kontakt 6 to see if that helps...but now Kontakt does not appear in Logic snymore at all! Despite it having downlosded and instslled (as confirmed in Native access). Whst is going on here? Please help!

I checked at NI and Kontakt 6 requires at least 10.12 Sierra. So you’ll now have to upgrade your OS to use Kontakt. After upgrading the OS I would reset the SMC and reset the PRAM. Also, if Apple shows Mojave as the upgrade in the store but you don’t want to upgrade to it you can probably still find the upgrade to High Sierra on Apple.com

Here's the link to find High Sierra at the App Store. It's under 4.

Hey Fastlanephil, thank you so much for checking and for replying. Somehow I did manage to download Kontakt 6 (although I am still using El Capitan 10.11) and it is now working fine.
I had to de-install Kontakt 5, then restart, then re-install Kontakt 6. Kontakt as well as Session Stings then showed up in my Logic properly.
